* In ''WesternAnimation/GIJoeRenegades'', Zartan has the ability to perfectly mimic any voice he hears. This is especially useful after he gains possession of a device that can project holographic disguises onto himself, making said disguises virtually flawless.

* ''Series/PersonOfInterest''. The [[BenevolentAI Machine]] and [[EvilCounterpart Samaritan]] are capable of this, despite usually communicating with either a mish-mash of assembled voice clips or via human avatars. A chilling example occurs in "QSO" when the host of a ConspiracyTheory radio show has stumbled on a secret that Samaritan would rather did not get out. During a live broadcast, his soundboard and phone lines go dead, yet he continues to hear ''his own voice'' talking over the radio, announcing that [[OhCrap he intends to commit suicide]].

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/AlQadimTheGeniesCurse'', this can be done by stealing the original voice and bottling it (as opposed to simply duplicating it).

Added DiffLines:

* In the ''Franches/{{Predator}}'' series, the titular alien hunters achieve this through recording and playing back human speech. While they are limited to specific phrases [[IronicEcho they tend to pick appropriate times to employ them]], suggesting they know a bit of English.

** Both of the above were achieved through voice changing software in RealLife. Played more straight with Zoom, whose voice actor as Zoom (Creator/TonyTodd) is different from the actor playing him, mostly to hide the eventual [[TheReveal Reveal]].

The same thing is done with Savitar, whose voice actor ([[Film/{{Saw}} Tobin Bell]]) is completely different from Savitar's real identity ([[spoiler:Barry Allen's future time remnant]]).

* The ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' monster known as the leucrotta can mimic the voice of any creature it has heard in order to lure its prey into an ambush. The Kenku, a race of humanoid corvids, also do this in place of having an actual language of their own, since they can only mimic back voices or words they've heard before.

* Both Alex Mercer from ''Videogame/{{Prototype}}'' and James Heller from ''Videogame/{{Prototype 2}}'' can use the voice of anyone they shapeshift into after eating them. Mercer uses this to call artillery strikes at desired targets. Interestingly, this apparently requires additional conscious effort (given both characters, while disguised, grunt and monologue in their default voises), leading, at one point, to this gem:
--> '''Pilot:''' "Doctor Carson, we’re ready for your pickup, but we can’t land until the, uh, disturbance on the ground is dealt with. Over."
-->'''Heller (as himself):''' "Roger th—(clears throat).”
-->'''Heller (as Doctor Carson):''' "Roger that. Let’s just hope someone can save our wuss asses from whatever the fuck is going on out there.”
-->'''Pilot:''' "Uh, right... Over and out.”

So we've all seen a [[ShapeShifting shape shifter]]. And we all know that when a shape shifter shifts themselves into another entity, they usually assume the voice of the entity they are copying. Meaning, a perfect imitation of another character's ''voice'' is a RequiredSecondaryPower of anyone who would change their ''physical'' form.

** And there is [[spoiler: Vermouth]], while she does not show the huge repertoire as Kaito Kid, she pulls off acting as both [[spoiler: Dr. Araide]] and [[spoiler: Jodie]]. [[spoiler: And her own mother]]. It's basically in-lore that you can't trust ANY voice.

* ''Podcast/RedPandaAdventures'' supervillain the Crimson Death has voice changing among his ComboPlatterPowers, taken from a low level supervillain called Mockingbird. He doesn't use it as part of his plans often, however he has a different voice every time he appears. This has been used to hide the fact he's the villain of the week.
